The middle weekend of my two weeks in Cambridge found me in the vastly different Mediterranean city of Barcelona, Spain.  Barcelona could be nothing short of an experience, for none of our brave group of explorers from Cambridge had ever been to the city (or the country), and our few paltry semesters of Spanish wouldn’t be terribly useful in a city that speaks Catalan, the French-Spanish Hybrid language.  With astoundingly little information about the city, it’s culture, or its history, we boarded a circus of a Ryan Air flight for Spain.

At this point in the writing of this post, I suddenly came upon a wealth of funnier, less pretentious thoughts about college.  In lieu of finishing this post, I will attach photos I took in Barcelona, and instead write my next post about college.  You’re welcome/sorry.

On the bright side, you can look forward to my next post, with an estimated post date of that happy place in between tomorrow and never.  When I finish it, there will be a link here.

Sorry for the lack of effort,


P.S. If you have questions about the pictures feel free to leave them in the comments! I know you won’t, but I don’t have the energy to caption them right now.

These are just a few pictures I took with my new camera while I was up in Iowa that I had the time to upload before work today.

Photography is 30 percent equipment, 30 percent skill, and 40 percent being in the right place at the right time.

I know I promised more real content but, yeahhhh.

Anyways, as always I appreciate your feedback so if you have any comments don’t hesitate to let me know!!

Also, click on the picture for the huge and glorious version.

Please don’t steal these, internet.

Clearly an amateur,


[I wrote this a few days ago, but didn’t post it for whatever reason.  Anyway I bought a Canon Rebel T2i yesterday, and I love it so far, pictures to come after I upload my old pictures. ]

I dabble in photography, so the only logical thing to do is spend a thousand bucks on a camera.  Which I plan to do this weekend.  To commemorate this monumental splurge, I have decided to post some of my favorite pictures I’ve taken with my cheaper camera so far in my photography “career.”

The camera I have right now is a Canon Powershot SX130 IS, which I highly reccomend as an entry-level point and shoot, I got some great pictures with it.

I fully expect the pictures I take with the nicer camera to be 3 times as good, because it’s three times as expensive. *pangs of pre-purchase regret*

I guess this is like a portfolio?

So this first set is just some odds and ends from around my house/dorm, artsy fartsyness.

Clearly an amateur,


P.S. The rest is coming like, next week. Along with new stuff, because I know how much you like looking at pictures. Oh and other actual posts are coming too, my bloggy senses are tingling.   But that could also just be the mouse in my bed in my grandma’s basement.

Firstly, my heart goes out to the Japanese yet again today, truly horrifying stuff.  I can’t even imagine what that must be like.  I encourage everyone to do anything they can to help out!

This is a group my friend Take started on Facebook for information about what you can do to donate or help out http://www.facebook.com/home.php?sk=group_140725962660364&ap=1

I’m working on an actual post, but I didn’t want to push it out unfinished, like (unpleasant premature birth metaphor), so I decided to post the pictures I took today instead.  A picture says a thousand words, so this is like… several thousand words about my spring break so far. I also dabble in photography.

Click on the pictures to see ginormous, HD versions. I do it big. Actually, it just sort of happened. Enjoy!

Artsy fartisly yours,
